11:30pm
claw their way back. but today, sloppy play and missed opportunities finally got to them. u.s. women haven't won a world cup in 12 years and this team seemed to be their best opportunity. they took 16 shots before finally knocking a goal but they couldn't hold off the japanese. they tied things up twice before dominating in penalty kicks. it was a tough loss for the americans. >> evidently it wasn't meant to be. we worked so hard. we believed in each other through everything. and olympics are around the corner. we are excited about that opportunity. >> northern ireland continues its golfing rain. a golfer from northern ireland won a major championship again but this time it may be a name that you might not recognize. darren clark. where did he come from? find out how the irishman plans on celebrating. the nats wrapping things up looking for their first
